Some Good News…

We’re so excited that we can once again open our doors to you all this month and that we are able to adapt our business to meet the needs of our community, while keeping everyone as safe as possible.

So, let us spread some Christmas cheer your way by sharing some great news…

Here at The Bull, you CAN still meet with your family AND friends in our awesome Garden Tent this December – we’ll be sure to keep you nice and toasty with fires, throws and lashings of mulled wine and hot chocolate. Alongside this we have a fantastic menu waiting for you – featuring glorious comfort food from our regular menu, Neapolitan pizzas, sumptuous Hotdogs and much more.

Classed as an outside area, the Government guidance is as follows:

‘You must not socialise in a group of more than 6 people outside, including in a garden or a public space – this is called the ‘rule of 6’.’

What this means, in simple terms, is that outside spaces are treated in a similar way to an old Tier 1 area – mixing outside is fine as long as there are no more than six people in your group.

We are also excited to announce that we are extending the opening hours of our Garden Tent – in fact, the tent will be open whenever the pub is! Bookings for the tent are filling up fast so make sure you get yourself booked in now via:

Alternatively, if you are dining inside, you can still sit in groups of up to six people who are from your household or support bubble – relax and enjoy some delicious food and an alcoholic beverage (or two!) in front of our roaring fires. We are open for many of the key dates over the festive period including Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day – these dates always fill up quickly so make sure you book yourself in early via: to avoid disappointment.

Please note we will only be taking bookings for people who wish to EAT with us – we cannot take bookings for drinkers only, if you wish to drink while you visit us you will need to order food.

We have made some slight changes to our opening hours to make sure we can deliver you the best run-up to Christmas possible – for more information please visit our website via:

We look forward to seeing you all very soon for some seriously festive fun this December.
